One of our Core Values at GRFW is Equity which is the belief that it is important to give everyone what they need to be successful. We believe that even if we don’t have the same background that we should all have the same opportunities. Making camp accessible to both campers and volunteers is an important part of creating an awesome experience. With this in mind, our Board of Directors has included Volunteer Stipends in our annual budget to help defray some expenses and encourage participation. This year our stipends are on an “Opt Out” basis. If you would prefer to donate all or part of your stipend back to GRFW, please indicate below. Stipends will be handed out at the end of the week. This process is honor-based and confidential.

Stipend amounts: 

  • Full time volunteers ($200)
  • Half-day/Part Time volunteers ($75)
  • Workshop Facilitators ($30 per workshop)
  • Guest Performers ($50)
  • Photographers/Videographers ($200)
  • Recording Engineer ($200)
  • Roadies ($30)
